How can we say Israel is so safe?

                                                                                    בס"ד
You may have seen an article last week entitled: Message From the Next World Comes to Israeli Mystical Rabbi, Warns of Imminent War.  He talks about a war that thousands could die in Israel.  I received this article from several of my readers including a question:   How can we say Israel is so safe?

I thought I would post my answer (with a little embellishment).
Let me tell you about the mysterious ways of Hashem.  You are probably familiar with the Gulf War statistics that 39 scuds hit Israel.  There were thousands of buildings destroyed, a tremendous amount of damage and yet only one death.  The death was a Jew-hater -- the message was clear.  One scud on the other hand hit a US Army barracks in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 29 soldiers were killed.  One other interesting statistic: during the week of the Gulf War all the roads in Israel were closed.  Since there were no deaths on the highways that week, that week was the safest time to be in Israel since 1948, the best statistics, only one death of an evil person.  The safest week in our history was during a major war.  Only in Israel!!!  Here is my favorite picture taken in Israel during the Gulf War:
 A Scud missile hit a house and completely collapsed the structure.  The frame fell in such a way that the family inside walked out of the rubble without a scratch.  Only in Israel!!!  There are many, many stories like this.

We have had over 15,000 rockets and mortars that have come out of Gaza.  The damage has been extremely low, as well as very few casualties.  I am not saying that all Israelis are deserving of Hashem's protection, in fact if you go by measure for measure statistics, many more Israelis have been protected than perhaps should have been (not my judgement -- Hashem's).

1948, 1956, 1967, 1973, 1982, 1991, 2006, 2008, 2010, etc, etc, etc were all totally miraculous and even totally impossible.  The 1948 war of independence was Israel, with no army, no armament, no provisions at all (the Jew-hating countries of the world made sure of it) against 4 mighty Arab armies, and Israel won?  It was so impossible, that West Point will never talk about it as a learning experience for their cadets.  There is no strategy to be learned when you have Hashem fighting for you, except that faith in Hashem and good prayer works.  It only happens in Israel!!!

I remember in 2006 when the war was occurring in Southern Lebanon and the rockets were coming out of Lebanon and Syria.  My daughter lived in Tzfat, just below the Lebanese border.  Her Rabbi, a great Mekubal, told his congregation not to worry that no rocket will land in their very observant neighborhood.  My daughter and her neighbors went outside and watched the rockets go by, and sure enough not one hit her neighborhood.  Even more ironic was how many rockets landed in Arab towns.  The casualty rate in Arab towns is always higher even if it is for propaganda purposes (they still blame it on the Jews).

I have so many stories about how Israel is so different from the rest of the world, but I will avoid writing another book here and just summarize with: "Israel is by far the safest place in the world for a Jew!!!!"  I saw a statement recently that a Jew who is not observant and not following Hashem's ways is safer in Israel than an observant Jew outside of Israel.  When Hashem is sending us many messages that He wants us to come home and that it will get worse for a Jew who remains outside of Israel, we should definitely believe Him with complete faith and trust.

If a Rabbi tells us to prepare for conflict, he is really saying to do more Teshuvah, more Tefillah, more Tzedukah, more Limud HaTorah, more Ahavas Yisroel.  Why?  Because every Jew will measure for measure receive what he or she needs to reach Tikun.  There is nothing random in this world and the messages from a Rabbi are messages from Hashem.  You want My protection?  Do the right thing and follow My ways.  The more you do, the more protected you will be – the less correction you will need.  I have been observing this principle for over 50 years, tens of thousands of people, it couldn't be more accurate.

There is no such thing as: Hashem wanted to protect a particular Jew, but the Jew was in the wrong place at the wrong time.  That is nonsense and not the way of this world.  Everything that happens to every individual is completely calculated by Hashem according to what that individual needs.  If you don’t believe that, you have just opened up yourself to possible suffering.

If there is war in Israel, and by all reports, the rest of the world is in much more trouble than Israel, this war will be to purify Israel from evil and bring measure for measure the Tikun that each individual needs.  The righteous Jews of Israel are protected; the not so righteous Jews will be helped by Hashem to become righteous.  Some people need a little bit more persuasion than others.

One other note.  The murder rate around the world, which is increasing greatly, is far worse than in Israel.  Don’t even be fooled when you see statistics in Israel of homicides, most are Arabs killing Arabs.  The US as an example, which has the second highest number of Jews in the world, has more people incarcerated than any other country in the world.  The violence is astounding and increasing exponentially.  There are many reasons, but one thing I can assure you is the near future will be dramatically scarier according to the plans of the global elite, the leaders and governments of the world and Hashem’s plans for cleansing the Earth.  Dead is dead and it doesn’t make any difference where you are, but if Hashem tells you to come home, and you don’t believe Him, you fill in the rest of this sentence.

Actually the greatest danger coming up is from Hashem.  The natural disasters that have been increasing worldwide, except for Israel, are a very strong message.  Once again, only in Israel are you sage!!!

    1. Since my basic message is that protection comes to those who follow Hashem, a non-Jew who is righteous and doesn't have the requirement to go to Israel, is protected. Hashem loves everyone, but shows special mercy to those who show love of Him.

  2. The message of Rabbi Vaknin is very interesting, since it comes with a message of Rabbi Eliezer Berland to his followers in Miami, which until Yom Kippur they should make Aliyah because in about 45 days the Messiah's soul will be revealed (not necessarily itself, but implies that the Messiah will have self-awareness of their status) ...

    1. You are correct. I noticed that Rav Berland mentioned Moshiach being imminent (I believe there was a separate article about the subject). It is actually consistent with others who are predicting war, but are stating that the war will be swift. The biggest difference is how much Israel will be involved -- Rav Ben Artzi, for instance, mentions war but only outside Israel.

  3. If we do what we need to do, and hold on to Hashem, we'll make it through B"H

    1. During the 2006 war with Southern Lebanon, many of my neighbors, because they don't have TV, radio or even the web, didn't even know that there was a war going on. When you are too busy studying Torah, you don't have to worry about the chaos of the world -- let Hashem handle it.

  5. I have heard that our president made threats if Israel went to war with Iran we would go after Israel. I pray to G-d that is not true. The christian's support Israel and do not support the person who is in the W.H. My husband also reminded me that the person in the W. H. cannot go to war with out the senate and congress okay. They would not okay anything like that. I do know when that piece came out some soldiers even said they would not go if they fight Israel . To fight your country would be to fight ourselves. The piece you wrote here was wonderful and so true. I have read the stories of how G-D watched over you will such miracles. G-D bless and keep Israel and its people safe from all evil of this world.

    1. No matter who says what about Israel, Hashem is in charge and runs the show. As Rav Ben Artzi has said, those who oppose Israel will suffer for it -- there is no problem. Obumer can say and do whatever he wants, he is only digging his own grave.

  8. Doesn't really have to do with this particular article.
    On Shirat Devorah website - concerning R' Kessin video and Geula still about 10-15 years away...... who will be able to withstand that? I sure can't. Hoping & Davening for Moshiach today. Each day to wait is long enough, forget about years. I guess no one knows and will continue hoping that we merit Geula B'rachamim NOW.
    Thank you

    1. I didn't watch it, but I can tell you that the tremendous evidence of Geula happening very soon far out-ways his opinion. In fact I could prove from scriptures that it is impossible for the Geula to be another 10-15 years. So we have two opinions R' Kessin or Hashem's.

  9. Rabbi Kessin links the geulah to Iran building the bomb. He thinks that will take 10-15 years and then Moshiach will come.
    Most military experts doubt it will take Iran that long. Hashem is running the show no one know s what the real trigger will be . Diaspora Ro

    1. Iran is a gigantic lie. Read my post: http://absolutetruth613.blogspot.co.il/2015/07/what-about-iran.html
      Iran has been in the nuclear energy business since the 1950's and has had nuclear weapons capabilities since the early 1990's.

      You are correct that Hashem is running everything, and He is the One Who told us that we are very close to the Geula (in scriptures and many obvious messages).

    1. This shiur is excellent and accurate. The problem is he talks too quickly and injects too much Hebrew. I enjoyed it since he summarized my 41 months of posts on this blog in a little over an hour.
